TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida Police Chiefs Association (FPCA) today will install Chief Frank Kitzerow of the Jupiter Police Department as the association’s 2014/2015 President. The swearing in, which will be performed by Chief Judge Jeffrey Colbath of West Palm Beach, will be conducted this evening during the FPCA’s 62nd Annual Installation and Awards Banquet in Boca Raton. As FPCA President, Chief Kitzerow’s top initiative will be strengthening public-private partnerships for the law enforcement community. He will also work with the National Center for Missing Children to include security personnel among those who immediately receive missing children alerts, as these individuals work in businesses and retail locations throughout the community.
“I am deeply honored to have the opportunity to lead this organization that tirelessly advocates for Florida’s law enforcement executives,” said Chief Kitzerow. “Florida’s police chiefs know that when they need resources or assistance, the FPCA will support them, and I’m looking forward to playing a critical role in that process.”
Chief Kitzerow has been Chief of the Jupiter Police Department since 2005 and has more than 30 years of law enforcement experience. A graduate of the FBI National Academy, he also obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Management from the National Louis University in Virginia and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the University of Phoenix. Chief Kitzerow began his career with Virginia’s Fairfax County Police Department and retired at the rank of Major while commanding the Criminal Investigations Bureau. Prior to becoming the Chief of Police in Jupiter, he served two years as Police Chief in Portsmouth, Va.
